Living in my native North-East England gives me a great base for photography. Stunning coastlines and countryside, the Cheviot hills, fantastic wildlife and within easy striking distance of Scotland, North Yorkshire and the Lake District. As a proud “Geordie” its hard for me to imagine a better place to be.
And, even during this period of economic recession, Tyneside remains a dynamic regional hub with progressive business and educational establishments that provide me with a market to fulfil promotional and commercial photographic needs. Most of my work revolves around these local opportunities although I frequently work from the Scottish borders down to the Leeds and Bradford area and generally, travelling isn’t a problem for me.
I’ve also roamed a bit. I spent the early 1980’s working and living in the Middle East and I make a point of returning to the paradise that is New Zealand at every available opportunity. Barcelona is without doubt my favourite city but I retain a particular fondness for Monte Carlo, Berlin and the charming little Reykjavik. St. Petersburg currently sits right at the top of my “yet to visit” list.
I would describe myself as an all round photographer who is equipped and able to tackle anything put in front of me. I especially like to indulge my passion for nature and landscapes whenever, and wherever, I am able but really enjoy getting into workplaces to capture people in action and record exciting new developments.
If you are a prospective client its important for you to know that I am Criminal Records Bureau checked and have undergone basic construction site safety training.
I’m a Canon man for no other reason than when I took up photography, whilst working in the Omani desert over thirty years ago, my mate and keen photographer Andy Palmer was a Canon man. Simple as that.
Over the period that has passed between I have remained faithful to the Canon brand although I confess to having brief flirtations with a number of different models. I’m currently enjoying a very settled relationship with 5D (Mk1, Mk2 & Mk3) bodies and don’t see that changing for the present.
As you will see from my portfolios, I’m a bit of a Jack-of-all-trades and so my kit reflects that. I use an EF 14mm f2.8L II USM almost exclusively for landscapes and, if the truth be known, its probably my favourite lens simply because of the image quality it produces. Incredibly sharp right through.
Moving up, the lens that lives on the front of one of my 5Ds is the EF 24-70 f2.8L USM zoom. It’s a great lens and my photography equivalent of a 4×4. Goes everywhere, does everything and does it well. I would guess that 80% of my images are taken through this combination.
I also use a couple of EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM as for those occasions when the 24-70 doesn’t get me close enough. Finally my EF 400 f5.6L USM, occasionally used in conjunction with an extender, does me for most of my wildlife shots. I really would love a 500mm or 600mm but, having recently handled one, don’t think either my back (or bank balance) would stand the strain.
Although I own some studio flash gear I tend to avoid studio work but do use a 580EX II Speedlight and battery pack most of the time. My tripod and monopod are both Manfrotto.
All of the images on my site are available for sale either for use in published or promotional literature or as prints delivered to your door. Prices vary, depending upon what it is you want and what it is to be used for, with prints starting as low as £10 plus postage for an unframed 8”x10”. The exceptions to this are those images taken by, and credited to, someone other than myself. These have been posted here in unashamed homage to the sheer genius of their creators who rightly retain the copyright.
My services are also available for hire for weddings, commissions or events. Again charges are dependent upon the nature of the work and the location but generally my clients will testify that my rates are very competitive. I have even been known to work at cost on occasions for worthy causes!! If you have specific needs please don’t be shy, use the contact form, or give me a ring and I will do my best to meet both your aspirations and your budget.
Thank you so much. You captured our day in the most breathtaking way
Sam and Paul Martin,
"We recently commissioned Trevor to shoot images of various housing and regeneration projects for use in promotional material. We were delighted with the quality of images supplied by Trevor. He has a natural talent for spotting the view point that produces a shot that is different from the norm. In addition, his work represents excellent value for money."
Regional Land Director
Keepmoat Homes Ltd.
I have known Trevor personally for several years and have used his photography services both in my time as an in-house PR manager for a further education college and more recently in my new role as director of a pr and creative design consultancy. Trevor has undertaken a wide variety of assignments for me, ranging from photography of students for prospectuses to covering indoor and outdoor community events for local publications, corporate photography for clients including restaurants and healthcare professionals, and media launches. His flexibility is second-to-none, rates are very reasonable and he frequently turns up a cover shot for a magazine I edit Pont News, making life that bit easier. I would be more than happy to recommend Trevor Walker Photography.

We asked Trevor to develop the images for our website, promotional work and for use in reports and brochures. He listened to exactly what we wanted and delivered. The quality of shots, advice and ongoing image editing support was first rate and the whole experience represented outstanding value for money.
MAKE Associates LLP
I have worked with Trevor Walker over the last couple of years since our company started construction on the Sanderson Arcade development in Morpeth. Trevor has produced some great work for us; ranging from site update shots, to wonderful architectural work and great PR shots that have helped keep us in the headlines! Good photography is so important in marketing our developments and Trevor has a great instinct for what makes a good picture. Not only does he produce work which is of a consistently high standard but just as importantly – he has a great way of putting people at their ease.
